Heraklion

— 20 nights
Crete's largest city, Heraklion remains best known for its proximity to a sprawling Bronze Age archaeological site, once the center of a vanished Minoan civilization.
Change things up with these side-trips from Heraklion: Mires (Agia Marina Donkey Rescue Sanctuary & Monastery Panagia Kaliviani), Matala (Matala Beach, Red Sand Beach (Kokkini Ammos), &more) and Museum of El Greco (in Fodele). Dedicate the 8th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Spend the 19th (Thu) exploring nature at Ecologiko Parko Giouchta. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Heraklion Archaeological Museum, step into the grandiose world of Castello del Molo (Koules), ponder the design of Morosini Fountain (Lion's Fountain), and tour the pleasant surroundings at Reptisland.
